The University of California at Los Angeles is pleased to announce a conference to highlight new understandings on the transnational character of Vietnamese Studies on May 11-12, 2001.
'Vietnam: Beyond the Frontiers' will serve as a forum to build relationships between Vietnamese and Western scholars, Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American Studies, graduate students and established scholars, and across methodological boundaries. This conference is premised on the assumption that intellectual interaction between these areas will help to forge new directions in the field. Panels will represent a broad range of topics that approach the study of Viet Nam across methodological and spatial boundaries.
